TO CELEBRATE the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee a flower display has been created at the High Port in Linlithgow.

The display represents the St Edward’s Crown – the heraldic royal crown which has been in use for royal coronations since the 17th century.

The concept was designed and produced by Joy Davis, who was assisted by neighbour Derek Mair, of Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service, who cut out the pieces and also helped assemble the structure.

Plants such as the coleus, marigolds and begonias were all supplied as plug plants and all plants were potted and cultivated by Joy from April onwards. They were sourced from a wide range of suppliers, mainly within West 
Lothian. Thanks also went to Hazel Duguid of Burgh Beautiful who gave six hours to help Joy with planting, and to David Kennedy of Rapid Effect Signs, Linlithgow for the banner.
